[Full-Disclosure] Debunking the threat of the Mac OS X Trojan
From: Thomas Vincent (thomasvmac.com)

The mainstream press starting with Wired is starting to blast Intego
for blowing the Mac OS X Trojan out of proportion. What the company
left out, and what has come apparent. Is that the virus was a
proof-of-concept that Mac programmer Bo Lindbergh wrote as a
demonstration of the threat and posted it to
comp.sys.mac.programmer.misc newsgroup on March 20 along with the link.
The real question I have is it a feature or a security issue that code
in the id tag of a MP3 file is executed? Also, is Intego guilty of
trying to cash in on the virus craze?
Wired has published some great articles on the subject:
